It has been awhile since we gave an update on Kyle. Life is busy as we adjust our time and schedules! In October Kyle was chosen (one of 40 in the western hemisphere) to participate in a clinical research study, resulted in limiting OT/PT for a month. We quickly realized how important therapy is to regaining more mobility. We are also learning that recovery from a spinal cord injury is akin to 3 steps forward and 2 steps backwards. In November Kyle got his own Quantum power chair made specifically for him. Up until then he had been using loaners. After 5 months of insurance denials, his specially built shower chair is to arrive today -- No more bird baths in bed for Kyle! While he is not yet ready for one, this week he was 'fitted' for a power assist wheel chair. Since insurance will only cover one chair, this one will be on us with an initial quote of $11 - 12,000.00. Thanks to your generosity this will be possible. We were all able to celebrate Thanksgiving with our extended family, a highlight in November. Kyle's little nieces and nephews provide him much entertainment when they visit, and we're looking forward to celebrating Christmas together. This life changing event for Kyle (and the rest of his family) has reminded us time and time again of God's goodness to us. We thank all of you for your continued thoughts, prayers, visits, and financial support. We are blessed! Our prayer for you is that you have an enjoyable Holiday Season! The Craigs
